New Zealand has been actively encouraging skilled immigration to fill New Zealand labor shortages as well as providing numerous other pathways to permanent residence.
New Zealand’s Skilled Migration Category (SMC) allows people with the skills and qualifications that New Zealand values to get permanent residence or a temporary permit to work. Applicants are scored against a points-based system and entered into a pool of potential migrants. Applicants are chosen every fortnight for an invitation to apply for migration to New Zealand. To test if you can qualify, Global Visas provides a free New Zealand Skilled Migration assessment.
Global Visas provide New Zealand immigration services to match your New Zealand Immigration needs.

Who can apply?
To be eligible for residence under Skilled Migrant Category you must:

To decide if you can apply we use a points system. You get points for age, experience, employability and qualifications.
How to apply
There are two steps:
1. The applicant has to complete an Expression of Interest, telling about himself, his family, his skills and his experience.
2. If an applicant has enough points, the concerned authority accepts Expression of Interest, and send an Invitation to Apply. It is to be completed and returned it to us with your supporting documents.
